Now almost a ghost town, Goldfield once was the largest city in Nevada, a boom town fueled by the lust for gold. Many rusting cars, stamp mills, and equipment can be seen, and one can get a map of the historic sites almost anywhere in town. The inhabitants that remain are kind but don’t mince words, the sort of people who don’t care who you are as long as you are nice, and shoot from the hip. I like that. Light painting photos of this nature are often best done near a full moon, and although occasionally plagued with cloudy skies, I kept shooting, clear skies or no. All colored light work was done during the exposure, and is not a Photoshop creation. However, I liked the feel of black and white for this image, so I decided to go with it!
Equipment: Nikon D610, Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 lens, Feisol tripod.
